really glad that we are talking about the extension of the cal train i am hope thating we spend more time as a board on this. i have no concerns whatsoever about ecom or the price. i am concerned about the scope of what is in this and what i know from talking to other people in the community is that the various partners that will be necessary to connect cal train to the transbay terminal do not agree about the alignment. the san francisco mayor's office and i am the mayor's appointee to this board does not agree with this alignment. i don't believe that the san francisco county transportation authority does. getting agreement between the various parties in addition to the high speed rail authority and cal train is the task ahead for us. the, i believe, i have a great concern about opening a supplemental and then locking ourselves in and then telling ourselves that we can't reopen it. i know that we have to do a supplemental eir but i don't think that we yet know what should be in it. >> i just add on that that question. because i had a related question. and so i was actually curious becau

. go ahead. >> what the stanford institute compared was the cal-pers return to hypothetical low risk portfolio pursued over the same 25 year time period, a negligible -- the "new york times", in 2012 found that pension funds investing in more alternative investments, not only have the highest risk levels, but contrary to expectations had poor returns than those that remained in traditional low risk investments. they further found that funds that did well with low risk investment policies nevertheless tended to switch to high risk model. and the reason for that is the upjohn institute in 2011 report titled an analysis of risk-taking behavior for public pension plans of over 100 funds found pressure on fund managers to change from their conservative investment policy to assume more risk, even if a fund made a higher return with a low risk portfolio. economists referred to this trend as the herd mentality. the jury can verify to the board of supervisors that studies do exist are easily found in our -- fromibt#n0v respected institutis showing that public pension funds with low risk inves

of a wonderful friend to arabs and muslims, i knew people who knew him, he was a cal grad like myself. the irony is you are killing a fripd. but that's the nature of mob violence and the ideology of hate. and unfortunately hate begets hate and that's what we're really seeing on both sides. put out an inflammatory film and people who are willing to do the dance who will confirm what the film is saying and when does this cycle end? we see this in schools as well, unfortunately. we see it on the internet way too much as you mentioned. look at any article, i am most familiar with articles about muslims but it seems like something happens to people when they go on the net, they turn into horrible people and say horrible things because nobody knows who they are. i think it obviously begins in the home, computers should be in open spaces, parents should have the ability to see what their children are doing and this goes through high school and then just the environment that we create in our schools and our communities where it's not cool to be doing these things. i think the machismo that feeds in

thor cal preservation commission and more scrutiny on historic buildings as to their preservation, as was the case before. * and given this scrutiny, which i think is good, we do want to preserve the past and preserve buildings from the past. we may have to allow in return for the preservation the owners of these buildings a little more flexibility in creating something that's economically feasible. otherwise, you have an older building that's in great disrepair, falling apart, a use that is not a credit to the neighborhood oftentimes and, you know, sometimes conditions in the case of housing that are not good ones for the residents there. so, i think -- i'm not saying wide open anything that's even vaguely eligible, but i think we have to kind of look at this carefully and see if there is something we could craft that would allow some flexibility in the various areas of zoning to allow something that's maybe legal but nonconforming to continue in this use in return for, you know, the restoration of the building. so, i'd like to see some research on that before next week. i unders

of. but if we go over the if is cal cliff, which is really more of a slope than a cliff. it is not like y2k where january 1, everybody has a dramatic cuts in services and dramatic increases in taxes. that will smooth in over time. that will happen over some time. there's things the president can do to delay the impact of that on the average family. but it is going to be a big shock to the markets and to lots of folks' savings and pensions if we get right up to the end of the year and we haven't had some healthy, clear negotiation about what's the path forward. some framework some downpayment and some bridge. so one bad thing we kick the can down the road. the other we go over the fiscal cliff but without any clear path forward or plan. in my view, a really bad plan is worse than no plan. at the end of the last congress, where i was here as a member of the lame duck, we were prevailed upon, persuaded to vote for a two-year extension of the bush tax cuts. the price of that was -- had we not done that, unemployment ins
to understand that -- and i'll speak slowly so all the lib cals out there understand. when the next congress is gaveled in, two-thirds of our income is fixed and stunted. republicans are asking for a reduction in government spending. there has never been a liberal progressive a democrat that can find any issue, especially social issues that need to be cut back. it's just not in their genes. that's how we established $16 trillion in debt. of course you can include george bush and his compassion nate conservativism which gave us a true trillion dollars, and then of course we have the president whose george bush on steroids when it comes to spending. now the problem overall is unless this country comes to grips with the fact that we can't afford all these social issues at the level that we're spending, this country is not going to go down the cliff, they're going to go down the drain. host: that was howard in california. danny says the reason we have a spending problem is because the rich investor class has created a low wage for free trade. host: here are some tweets we've been receiving on th
